As a big fan of mountains and cliffs, it would be a shame to have visited Norway and not tried to do justice to the magnificent fjords. This is my attempt.

The days on either side of this had some of the worst weather I've seen in a long time. The morning after this, myself and Greg Annandale were pretty much trapped on top of a mountain overlooking Bergen as a storm literally chased us under cover. We pretty much had the opposite problem when we toured the fjords; it was far too sunny and bright to get some decent shots. Given a tripod and a nine exposure HDR, we could have made some headway. Sadly, we had to settle for handheld HDRs from the back of a moving vessel.

I've been holding off processing a lot of Norway shots, as I wasn't too keen on some of them. Going through the archives at the weekend, I stumbled across this one and thought, with a few hours work, this could turn out quite nice. I hope it has. According to Greg, this is around the Nærøyfjorden area, a branch of the Sognefjord. Since 2005, the Nærøyfjord has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It has also been rated by the National Geographic Society as the world's number one natural heritage site along with the Geirangerfjord.

You really, really, really must view this in the lightbox to see the grandeur of this location.
